7:01 am
the biggest drama yet on the dance floor. one of the most shocking moments of the season. the couple sent home after three perfect 10s. val and elizabeth flying all night to be here live, only on "gma." and good morning, america. on this november 12, 2013. you know what that means? look at the calendar. 11-12-13. a lot of people think that's a very lucky day. >> oh, good, good. >> lara's one of them. a lot of people getting married today, as well. and i guess lottery tickets are being scooped up all across the country as well. a big $132 million jackpot. >> can't win if you don't play. and the latest from the philippines. brand-new pictures coming in from the most devastating regions. and thousands of people trying to evacuate right now, including americans. our terry moran just arriving in the typhoon zone with u.s.
7:02 am
marines. >> we're going to get to him in just a minute. let's begin with the cold blast affecting so many americans this morning. ginger zee is here with that. good morning, ginger. >> you were throwing things at me yesterday. and it's our first kiss of winter for so many folks. this is a shot from white plains this morning. the flakes are few and far between. but believe me, they are happening. in northbrook, illinois, and cincinnati, ohio, the first snow. and you see just outside of chicago. and here. behind it is going to be really cold air. the windchills this morning are close to zero in a lot of the far northern plains. but look what it's going to be like tomorrow morning. if you're waking up in the south and saying, it didn't get here yet, i'm safe. yeah, that's not happening. tomorrow morning, it will feel like it's 33 in tallahassee. new orleans is going to feel like it's 29. and look at the actual air temperatures. the ice puddle comes down. we changed it from purple to full-on ice. and new orleans will slip to 38 for wednesday morning. tallahassee, come with me.
7:03 am
34. atlanta, 26. this is short-lived for a lot of folks, you guys. but what i do want to say is it's going to come to that. but we'll get mild air eventually. >> a lot of purple on the board right now. a lot of purple on the board. thank you, ginger. now, to the frantic relief effort to help victims of the philippines supertyphoon. one of the most powerful storms ever to hit land. u.s. marines landing on monday, bringing much-needed supplies to the devastating country. abc's terry moran is right in the middle of the hardest-hit area. >> reporter: amid total devastation this morning, major evacuations are under way. this group of teens, waiting to leave, four days after smashing through a window and scrambling on to a roof. abc's gloria riviera was at the airport as they were preparing to leave. >> most harrowing was when i saw women and children piled under tarps. and when i saw dogs and cars
7:04 am
thrown into buildings. people trying to find something to eat, water to drink. it was -- people need help. >> reporter: for so many so desperate to get out, the nightmare continues. the storm's massive surge is blamed for much of the devastation. in tacloban alone, nearly 2,000 residential buildings, nearly half the city heavily damaged or destr destroyed. in the town's center, body bags. too many to count. the crisis has grown more acute by the hour. all that remains, a barren wasteland of hunger and filth. little medicine or sanitation. and the unmistakable stench of death. there are so many sick, this woman says. our pharmacy was washed out. u.s. boots on the ground are bringing much-needed backup, of planes and powerful osprey helicopters are ferrying supplies. for so many here who won't get out, it's about surviving each day. night is falling here now. and the last flights are leaving
7:05 am
this broken place. for all of those left behind, there is only the darkness and the deprivation and the dead. >> they're going to need a lot of help for a long time. we're going to turn to washington now and the first government figures adding up how many americans have signed up for health insurance on that troubled obama care website. administration officials warned that the numbers would be low. on that, at least, they appear to be right. jon karl is here with the latest. jon? >> reporter: that's right. "the wall street journal" is out with a report saying it will be fewer than 40,000 people who signed up for the health care plan through the administration is not confirming that number. and it wouldn't include the number of those in the state that have their own exchanges and wouldn't have to go through that messed up website. but this much is clear. the number of enrollees which we learn this week will fall short of the 500,000 goal that the white house set for itself. george, the white house is saying there's no real need to
7:06 am
panic over this because it's a six-month enrollment period. if you bought your insurance today, it wouldn't go into effect until january. but make no mistake, this is far short of where they wanted to be. >> meantime, still a lot of problems with that website. only a couple weeks away from the end of november deadline. the administration promised the website would be fully ready then. will they make it? >> reporter: that's a great question. they believe they will make it. it's not going to be entirely fixed. but largely functional by the end of the month. >> jon karl, thanks very much. now, to the latest on the miami dolphins. those allegations of bullying. the owner of the dolphins, stephen ross, addressing the allegations publicly last night, during his team's game against the tampa bay buccaneers. matt gutman joins us with the latest. good morning, matt. >> reporter: good morning, robin. if last night's crushing defeat here was any indication, the dolphins' organization is reeling. but the soul-searching may have
7:07 am
begun, spearheaded by the team's owner, saying we is appalled by the allegations of bullying. the miami dolphins' owner, breaking the team's two-week wall of silence. >> what's going on, it couldn't have been a worse nightmare. >> reporter: stephen ross took the podium, declaring he won't tolerate hazing in his locker room. he spoke to espn's mike tirico. >> it really goes against something that i really believe in. and to hear these types of charges and to be part of that is something that i find very -- something that i can't really live with. >> reporter: the owner of the franchise, with some of the biggest names in football. don shula, dan marino, jason taylor. >> there is no room in the workplace for this. and i believe vehemently about that. >> reporter: it came just hours after reports on monday that jonathan martin's season could be over. the 6'5" defensive lineman left the miami dolphins last month, amid reports a fellow lineman harassed him, even taunted him
7:08 am
with racial slurs. martin reportedly checked himself into a hospital for emotional distress in late october. >> it sounds like i'm a racist pig. it sounds like i'm a meathead. >> reporter: his alleged bully, the equally mountainous richie incognito, addressing those allegations for the first time on sunday. >> this isn't an issue about bullying. this is an issue of my and jon's relationship, where i may -- i have taken stuff too far. and i didn't know it was hurting him. >> pressure coming. >> reporter: the scandal has dealt a blow to the dolphins. the nfl on monday, announced its investigation would extend to the coaches and the front office. some say the episode could change the game itself. would you say that hazing in nfl locker rooms is now dead? >> dead. it's dead like the leather helmet. it's over. >> reporter: now, in that spirit, stephen ross, the dolphins' owner says he's flying out to california tomorrow to meet with martin.
7:09 am
still it seems most likely that neither martin nor incognito will suit up in a dolphins uniform again this year, if ever. >> maybe somewhere else. but dead like a leather helmet. let's get the other top stories from josh. >> we're going to begin with a story developing overnight. a man under arrest in north carolina under terrorism charges. 29-year-old basit sheikh, a native of pakistan, is charged with trying to help a group linked to al qaeda in syria and allegedly communicated with an fbi informant. he was arrested at the airport on his way to the middle east. and we learn pd overnight the son of oklahoma senator jim inhofe was killed in this plane crash near tulsa. dr. perry inhofe was piloting the aircraft when it went down in the woods you see there. no word on what caused the deadly crash. and a terrifying night for this state trooper in michigan. you see some video here. a chase of a suspect on a highway overpass. eventually, you see there, the man jumping over the guardrail. the trooper trying to grab him.
7:10 am
they both plunge some 25 feet to the ground. fortunately, you see that grassy knoll right there. they landed there. and both survived the fall. a water main break caused the giant sinkhole on chicago's south side. roughly 20 by 80 feet. crews had to expand the hole to repair the broken pipe. meanwhile, neighbors' basements flooded with two feet of water. and the danger of speed on water on full display here. at this boat race in england. a power boat rocketing across the lake at 130 miles per hour when it soared, as you see here, flipped. landed upside-down. a violent crash. thankfully, however, the driver of that boat appeared in the water. there you see him, and gave a thumbs up. all okay. and the crowd at this globetrotters game got quite a scare. william bullard pulling a rather routine stunt dunk, if you will. hanging on that rim.
7:11 am
but don't do that at home, kids. because that can happen. we see this a lot in the sport. never quite that bad. he is very lucky to have gotten away with just a bad gash to his head. as you saw, though, later waved to foons let them know that he was okay. finally, finders keepers. maybe not. you be the judge. guy and his wife in connecticut buy a desk on craigslist the other day. 150 bucks. they get it home. they found something behind the drawers. a bag. inside the bag? $98,000 in cash. >> what? >> so what did they do? >> they called the previous owner. turns out, she stuck her inheritance in the desk. had forgotten about it. >> forgot about it? >> the owners, braking for that yard sale, returned it. we should mention the new owner is a man of faith. he says the most important thing in life is to be honest. if not $98,000 richer. >> how do you forget $98,000 anywhere?
7:12 am
>> where is that $98,000? where did i? where did i? >> i'm so glad that that's the person who found it. >> be glad that the rabbi's door was small. they had to take the desk apart to get it in the house. we're going to turn to some news now that could make your trip to the airport easier. europe is now easing the ban on liquids on planes. raising hopes that the tsa will soon do the same here in the u.s. david kerley is at reagan international airport with the details. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, george. none of us like dumping our downing our liquids before we go through security. but unlike our european friends, don't expect to carry one of these through security here in the u.s. any time soon. you know the drill. no liquids larger than three ounces allowed through security. that's changing at european airports.
7:13 am
>> it's an outdated rule. we feel that tsa should be given the tools necessary to keep us safe. >> reporter: an ohio company says it has come up with a scanner that can check liquids. and the british are going to try it out, as european countries start to roll back some of the liquid restrictions starting in january. but don't expect to see the same in the u.s. any time soon. why? well, could these scanners handle the volume of liquids we might want to carry? and more importantly, certain liquids can be combined to build a bomb. a bomb that can do this. u.s. intelligence agencies learned that terrorists were working on carrying chemicals in containers, including false. bottom drink and soda cans, where dthey would mix them into explosive combinations. >> if i can get liquids through a checkpoint, i can get it on a plane. i can detonate it at altitude. and the plane is going to come out of the sky. >> reporter: the tsa says it is looking forward to relaxing the rules on liquids and is working with our european partners.
7:14 am
but adds this skeptical notes that a liquid scanner, quote, remains a long-term goal. why a long-term goal? tsa is looking at a number of companies and a number of ways to scan these products. and no decision is close at hand, george. >> that's too bad. i hope they'll hurry up. >> that would be good. now, to the pastor under fire for his role in his son's same-sex wedding ceremony. the reverend broke methodist church law officiating the wedding and now faces a church trial that could lead to him being defrocked. reena ninan has more on this. >> reporter: the united methodist church says its faithful, the 11 million around the world, focuses on putting faith and love into action. that's exactly what one reverend did. now, the church is asking questions. he is the minister willing to give it all up for his son. even if it means being forced out of the priesthood of united methodist church for officiating his gay son's wedding. >> i felt totally honored. i was full of joy. >> reporter: reverend frank schaffer says his son, tim, was forced to admit he was gay at 17.
7:15 am
but instantly he and his wife accepted the news. >> he had cried himself to sleep many times. and he knew that this wasn't right because he had heard that message from his church. >> reporter: schaffer informed his superiors he was going to perform the wedding in 2007. and they did nothing to stop him. but six years later, a parishioner complained. now the minister will face a trial before a jury of his church peers on monday, to determine if he can remain a pastor. >> what is my crime? i blessed two people that loved each other. we ask you, lord, for your understanding. >> reporter: he is buoyed by support, like this candle vigil, and from fellow ministers. >> jesus, our lord and savior, never mentioned homosexuality at all. and my point is, if it is that important of an issue, why didn't he mention it? >> reporter: if your dad is defrocked and forced out of ministry, do you believe it was worth it? >> i do. this is getting the conversation started to revisit really
7:16 am
discriminatory policies. and i think that will have made it worth it. >> reporter: despite what the verdict brings, he said he would do it all again. >> they're your children. they're your flesh and blood. >> reporter: a facebook page supporting reverend schaffer has received more than 2,000 likes. we did reach out to the church. but they declined to comment. >> but again, he didn't try to get away with anything. he informed his superiors and they had no problem. and a parishioner comes forward six years later? >> reporter: six years later. and they really wanted this to be a private ceremony. they didn't want to do the public announcement and bring it back in. and they feel moved that this is an issue that affects a lot of people in america. >> it gets the conversation going again. reena, thank you. >> one thing's for sure. he's a loving dad. okay, you guys have noticed it by now. today's date, pretty special. 11-12-13. the second-to-last sequential day in the century. it has a lot of couples rushing to get married. but is it really a lucky day? nick watt examines the evidence. >> reporter: 3,000 couples will get married today.
7:17 am
a nondescript tuesday in november. san francisco's city hall is booked solid. vegas is packed. why? because it's 11-12-13, of course. >> you're embracing all of this energy. all of this consciousness. so, your marriage is going to really launch. >> reporter: really? >> yes. >> reporter: next december, we'll have 12-13-14. then, no more consecutive dates until january 2, 2103. and i will be 129 years old and perhaps marrying my eighth wife. consecutive dates, so they say, are just plain lucky. c carpe diem. i bought ten tickets to the lottery draw tonight. $132 million, mine. >> good luck.
7:18 am
>> reporter: $132 million is up for grags on the megamillions. the nearly consecutive numbers. close enough. >> the father of mathematics, is the math of numerology. >> reporter: yeah, whatever. today is also ryan gosling's 33rd birthday. and that's all the proof i need that today is a special day. for "good morning america," nick watt, abc news, los angeles. >> that nick watt. >> a ryan gosling fan. a lot of couples inducing births today? >> they want to have babies today. >> go figure. >> a lot of people saying they want to do it in the afternoon at 2:15. 11-12-13, 14:15. >> they want to do what? >> get married. >> clean it up. >> buy lottery tickets because we're all going to win. it's a lucky day. >> a lucky birthday. i was saying, it's snowing. see behind us here? that's right. happy snow, everyone. that's it. okay. i want to warm you up. i don't want to leave you in the cold we've been talking about. let's get right into it. come with me and get an idea of who is hot in the country. the southwest, a big surprise,

7:32 am
circumstantial case, based on love, betrayal and lies. but a jury reached a decision after one long night of deliberation. and it may have come down to one basic fact. that the jurors believed martin macneill loved one woman so much, he needed his wife out of the picture, completely. this is the woman prosecutors say martin macneill killed his wife to be with. gypsy willis. >> i never believed he was capable of such a thing. >> reporter: you don't believe he killed michele? >> i really don't. >> reporter: the allegation was, he loved you so much, that he wanted his wife out of the picture so he could be with you. >> martin had me anytime he wanted me. i have a hard time accepting that as an idea. >> reporter: but a jury did accept it. and this weekend, convicted the utah doctor of murdering his wife, michele, in the couple's bathtub. when you heard that michele macneill had died, did any part of you think, now, i can have him to myself? >> that was not my thought at that time. >> he asked you to come to the
